How I can swap between buffers in vim when editing a spec rpm file?

asked 2014-02-06 03:27:30 -0500

Software Specs

Fedora Version: F20
Vim version: VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4
Additional plugins installed: none

Normally when I edit any file in vim and I want swap between buffers i use

:bnext or :b1

and I can swap between buffers successfully

But when I editing a rpm spec file I receive the following error.

An error was detected while processing /usr/share/vim/vim74/ftplugin/spec.vim:
E227: mapping already exists for <80><fd>SSpecChangelog

if the mapping for spec.vim is <LocalLeader>-c which is the same (\c)

What i doing wrong?

Note: I don't have any additional plugins installed on my vim installation

I'm not sure why this is failing this way, but you should be able to show the list of open buffers with:


and then change to a particular target buffer with:

:buffer <buffer_id>

where the buffer id is the buffer number from the first list. Of course, you don't have to list the buffers if you already know which buffer you want to go to.

in fact, it works, but still appears the same error message, that is annoying (but i can swap between buffers), thanks :)
